    Gorgeous Pennsylvania $50 Red Seal

    Stroudsburg, PA - $50 1902 Red Seal Fr. 666 The Stroudsburg National Bank Ch. # (E)3632 PCGS About New 53.
    This $50 Red Seal is one of the highlights of tonight's massive National Bank Note offering. It is a fantastic representative of one of the toughest types in Nationals to find, with the latest count from the National Bank Note Census standing at just 103 examples from all banks in the country combined. This piece has a storied pedigree as well, having once been part of the fabled collection of Albert A. Grinnell. Grinnell's holdings were sold over a three year period, with this note fetching a massive $68 when it went under the hammer in June of 1945, a time when the attention of the world was clearly not focused on collectible currency. Grinnell's auctioneer, Barney Bluestone of Syracuse, New York, graded the note as "Beautiful, Crisp, Unc." and it certainly appears fully New in the holder, but todays more conservative grading standards have dictated a grade of About New. Whatever the technical grade, this is a beauty, with its great color, bold signatures, and superb eye appeal ranking it as one of the very nicest $50 Red Seals to be offered in many years.
